New Sports Betting Law - When will it reach highschool football?

Recommended Posts

Very disturbing developments relative to the legalization of sports gambling nationwide

I abhor the sports gambling culture, and the societal woes it brings along with it

It's an epidemic and a plague that infects this country, and in my view, comparable to the damage done to individuals and families as is the opiod crisis

Both ultimately result in total loss and devastation

Sports Radio is now consumed by gambling. It's become unlistenable for fans who actually follow and support teams for all the right reasons

Not only will they bet on the outcome, but they will bet on wether the next pitch is a strike, or the next play results in a turnover. Ghastly

At this rate, it won't be long before newspapers are publishing betting lines on Friday night high school football games

One day, Joe Millennial is filling out his fantasy football roster, and the next, he is betting the line on the Copper Kettle Rivalry Game

Sad state of affairs, and an indictment on the "no worries" Millennial culture

At the current rate of change, you may no longer have a need to apologize.  :04_v:

Betting on high school sports will never be legalized. If you really read into this instead of jumping to your "sky is falling" rhetoric you'd realize New Jersey, the state that pushed for this, is outlawing any betting on college institutions. Still won't stop people from betting on it like they always have been, and if you think people haven't been and won't continue to bet on high school sports in this country then you're naive.

Yep, you're right. We millennials fixed the 1919 World Series . . . my fellow millennials like Paul Hornung, Art Schlichter, and Pete Rose really added to the millennial gambling issue . . .  and lets not even start on those millennial Supreme Court Justices that legalized this . . .

I mean if that picture doesn't scream millennial . . .  before you know it they're gonna make it law that we have to give participation trophies in professional sports.

Can't trust any of them . . . especially Ruth . . .

Well relatively to millennials its getting old hearing the generation that raised us blame us for how we were raised.

That aside gambling legalization is long overdue. If John Q. Taxpayer wants to go blow his money betting on sports then he should be allowed to do so. I really don't think this law is going to create a large percentage of more gambling issues, in the end it's going to allow the government and professional sports leagues make millions.

I have a millennial daughter

She loathes most millenials too.  She was brought up the right way.  She knows her place in life and she has respect for those who have earned it.  She doesn't wallow thru life with a chip on her shoulder and blame everyone else for her place in life, and constantly on the lookout for a handout.

I think keeping her away from the video game culture helped shield her from all the other bad stuff that comes with it.  Joblessness, drug and alcohol consumption, gambling and dependency.  

It is what it is, but not for her.

Seems like a lot of young boys of this generation are holed up in their mom's basements bingeing on video games , Netflix and fast food.  Its why Taco Bell now has home delivery and McDonalds curb side pickup.  These dudes are so lazy they cant even go thru the drive up window anymore.  LOL

This type of "non activity" breeds the types of side effects I outlined in my previous post on the matter.  Oh, add crime to the list.  Forgot that one.

The Supreme Court didn't "legalize" sports gambling.  It simply ruled that the The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act was unconstitutional and constituted an overreach of Federal power.  The court's position primarily revolved around the fact that the law was regulating state legislatures and not the actual activity of sports gambling.  The court actually stated that the Federal government has the power to regulate sports gambling directly.  The final summarizing paragraphs of the majority opinion of the court are quite telling:

"The legalization of sports gambling is a controversial subject. Supporters argue that legalization will produce revenue for the States and critically weaken illegal sports betting operations, which are often run by organized crime. Opponents contend that legalizing sports gambling will hook the young on gambling, encourage people of modest means to squander their savings and earnings, and corrupt professional and college sports.

The legalization of sports gambling requires an important policy choice, but the choice is not ours to make. Congress can regulate sports gambling directly, but if it elects not to do so, each State is free to act on its own. Our job is to interpret the law Congress has enacted and decide whether it is consistent with the Constitution. PASPA is not. PASPA “regulate(s) state governments’ regulation” of their citizens, New York, 505 U. S., at 166. The Constitution gives Congress no such power."

Lets be honest there are plenty of Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and yes even Greatest Generation folks who pull the same stuff.

So we've gone from Millennials created the gambling issue to video games create unemployed, drug using alcoholics, who are dependent on others to fund their gambling addictions?

I grew up on video games. First one ever was Mortal Kombat (otherwise known as the tool of Satan) on Nintendo 64 where people would bleed from the ears when getting kicked in the shin because for some reason everyone in that game had a blood platelet level of zero. Played video games all throughout childhood and adolescence . . . 

I'm employed . . . not addicted to drugs . . . not an alcoholic . . . don't gamble (hit the slots on my 21st birthday, lost $80, never been back) . . . and I'm financially independent . . . 

Guess that makes me a survivor!

Sounds like you are doing well.  Glad to hear it.  We need more strong, positive young people like yourself.  

Facts are Facts  There is a direct correlation to the video game-moms basement- unemployment line path to futility and despair.  .  Labor rate participation amongst your generation is at an all time low.  Household creation, wealth creation and marriage are declining at alarming rates.  Personal unsecured debt is growing and nearly out of control.  Those claiming dependency on the Federal government, especially those making bogus disability claims, are rising rapidly and putting a huge strain on the national treasury.  

Gambling is just a diversion to focus attention away from these problems.  Its sad.

I played fantasy for part of one season.  It was early 90s, and as a Chicago Bears fan, I was asking myself at 1245AM on a Monday night "what are you doing still up at this hour waiting for Ernest Givens of the Houston Oilers to catch a TD pass for your fantasy team?"  I pulled the plug the next day.

Did a $10 NCAA tournament pool a few years back.  Not a BB fan so really had no interest.

I do have one gambling activity I do enjoy.  I like to play video poker at the casino every now and then.  Won $1000 at the 25 cent poker game last week.  Caught 4 Aces   :07_v:

So where is the line where sports gambling is OK is some cases but not others?  Did you only recently begin to "abhor the sports gambling culture, and the societal woes it brings along with it" 

All fantasy football and NCAA tourney pools are is sports gambling.  I mean it is a 150 BILLION dollar industry--and that is just the illegal betting estimates.

Half the generation is still under the age of 18 so give us some time we'll get there.

Not getting married and buying houses because we want to be financially stable before making life commitments we can't afford. About that wealth creation . . .
